So how does everyone think the ITK will reveal himself to Dexter? Over a beer? Over Deb's dead body? Or maybe Dexter will figure it out first

Holy fuck! What a show. The wait until next week is going to be unbearable.
 
I love that despite what he claims, Dexter does feel. He is emotional thinking of the bloodbath and is terrified that Rudy will kill Deb.
 
I think Dexter will save Deb. As for Rudy, I don't know. Will Dexter give him the same treatment as the other killers? Or will he let him go since he respects him so much?
 
So who thinks the new Haitian-American Lietuenant will have something to do with Doakes? He served in Haiti after all...

Forgot to mention - did anyone else get chills when Dexter told Doakes to take his fucking hand off of him? First time Dexter has really shown his true self to anyone else (other than his victims). Michael C Hall is just amazing in the role.

I liked it, a great setup for the season finale. Dexter's realisation who the ITK was wasn't as dramatic as I'd hoped. Deb's realisation was! Paul's reaction to his kids while in prison was great. And the guy playing Rudy seemed a lot more cmofortable with his character in this episode. At first he was very distant and just did the whole 'stare intently' thing - he seemed to loosen up a bit in this episode

Another good episode - I'll miss this when it finishes. A bit creepy watching this in light of the Ipswich murders.

Loved it! I didn't really think Dexter would go through with killing Deb but it was great seeing him battle with his demons before stopping Rudy/Brian. After that confrontation I was a little disappointed as I thought that was the last we'd see of Rudy/Brian this season, but my fears were put to rest when we saw someone watching Dexter put Deb to bed.
 
I knew Dexter was pretending to be asleep but I did think Deb was in the bed. It was a great 'hell yeah' moment when Dexter put the wire round Rudy's neck. Thought it was strange that there were no police at Rudy's house but I'll let it slide. That scene with Rudy tied up was just fantastic. Dexter was devastated at having to 'put him down'. And the fatal blow came from nowhere!
 
Apparently in the book Rudy gets away at the end but I like this ending better. Looks like the centerpiece of next season will be Dexter having to keep Doakes away from the truth and doing the same with Rita. I really loved the scene at the shipping yard where Dexter got the better of Doakes.
 
What an amazing first season! I'm not sure if the second book has a single serial killer at the centre of things ala the ITK but either way I can't wait to see it.

Yup, fantastic way to end the season, and I'll miss downloading this brilliant show! I too was glad to see more of Rudy/Brian after thinking we'd seen his last, and the way they mimicked each other's catching/killing styles was great. That final imagined sequence was a wonderful way to end it all, and I'm really looking forward to where everything goes in the second season.

Great episode! And yes, what a brilliant scene to end the series on 

Not sure how I feel about the killing of Rudy. I quite liked him! It would have been interesting if he had escaped and the sibling relationship could have been explored a bit deeper in the second season.

I was genuinely surprised they were brothers, though they were building it up from the beginning of the episode. The reveals are always satisfying, even when you sense them coming.

What the hell are they going to do for next season!?

Add me to the list of people who thought it was great :)

I want to rewatch them all now - didn't Dexter tell Deb that Rudy wanted to become part of the family. I'll look at all of his scenes in a whole different light now. Thought it was great the way he went from charming to sinister so quickly, but I still felt sorry for him. I would've liked Rudy to have got away, but I suppose killing him off makes more sense. And it was a fantastic scene.

Roll on season 2!

Christian Camargo was the guy playing Rudy/Brian - and the good news is he's going to be on Studio 60 soon as an actor portraying Keith Richards in Harriet's Rolling Stones film. Apparently he gets to wear all the Richards gear and do his best impression. Should be fun.

Its been a superb season, sad to see Rudy go. I would have kept that story going but he went out while it was strong. I didn't click about Rudy/Dexter's relationship until he first went to the house, I thought he was just helping him realise who he was, sometimes I can be so slow. Puzzled me how he could know so much about Dexter's past.

Just reading the 2nd book, and if the series follows them season 2 should be a belter!

Dexter is being hounded by Doakes but then a murder takes place which forces them to work together again and 1 of them has to be the bait to catch the killer (I won't reveal anymore...)

Dexter
1/12

ITV1's latest American import is a bold choice: a darkly comic drama about a forensics expert who tracks serial killers by day, and is a serial killer by night. It's a bracingly original series that slices and dices cop-show cliches with an evil glint in its eye. Sometimes you won't know whether that lurching sensation is laughter or nausea, but cling on and you'll be rewarded. The direction is daring, an addictive story develops and there's a hypnotic lead performance by the devil-eyed Michael C Hall (Six Feet Under). What really sets Dexter apart is how skilfully it messes with our moral convictions. Finding yourself cheering on a bloodthirsty sociopath is a unique thrill, but the show's fetish for flesh is sensuous and understated, when in most murder dramas it's gratuitous gore. Wickedly good.

    Can somebody tell me without revealing any plot points whether season 2 is as good (or maybe better than) as season 1? Was just curious as i see season is on FX soon.

    Season 2 was just as good, if not better, than the first season.

    While still damn fine television, sadly Season 2 isn't as good as Season 1, a large part of that is down to that awful English actress from "Hustle".

    She may have been bad but Rudy was more irritating in Season 1.

    Plus Season 2 has Keith Carradine that more than makes up for her.

    I cannot disagree more with the first comment (and the odd thing, rewatching it, is how much Dexter junior actually looks like Rudy too - deliberate?). for one thing, the chap playing him could actually act.

    A very fair point for the second though - he was an excellent addition.

    Rudy - irritating? He made season 1, S2 isn't half the show without him. Dexter's indulgent self-analysing is stretched way too far with no-one to deal with but himself

    Carradine's a great actor but the buttoned up old man falling for Deb plotline, while nice, isn't much more than filler

    Agreed. Season 2 was a disappointment, to say the least. It began edging into melodrama and silliness towards the end, with Carradine's character wasted on a poorly written soap opera subplot. As for Dexter and his 'dark passenger' schtick, that was just godawful and probably the biggest mistake the show's writers made; entire episodes being given over to Dexter's self indulgent introspections and existential rants, complemented by the terrible character of Lyla who delivered some of the most ridiculous and laugh out loud dialogue I've heard in a TV show in quite some time. The first two episodes and last two of Season 2 are the only ones watching; you could probably skip the rest and save yourself a few hours!
